More Core 6
Core work may not be your favorite pastime, but if you understood its role in fast swimming, it might help to ease the pain.
A crane’s base (used for building high-rise apartments) must be super stable and more robust than the crane’s arm. If it were weaker, the crane would collapse! The same concept applies in swimming. Your core (base of the crane) is attached to both your arms and legs (the crane’s arm). If it’s powerful, you’ll be able to generate a firm pull and kick, but if it’s weak, your pull and kick will collapse.
On the flip side, a strong core is like a steel bridge, while a weak one is like a bridge made of rope. The stronger it is, the higher your body rides in the water, and the easier it is to fully extend your arms and legs.
